Thanks to everyone that’s been getting in touch, the support is truly appreciated. However, my inbox is now overflowing. I will get a response to everyone that has got in contact, but it could take up to a week.
My inbox has been flooded with questions asking for additional information about Indonesia visa’s and visiting Bali. I am working through my messages and trying to get back to everyone as soon as possible. Here are the answers to some F.A.Q’s.
1) I have been in contact with the embassy in my country, and have been told they are not issuing B211 visas?
It can be a diffult task to obtain information from an embassy at the best of times. However in this case they are correct. There have been some recent changes to the application process for B211 visa’s. Passport visa’s are no longer being issued. Instead, e-visa’s are now being issued by the Directorate General, Jakarta. Which makes the application process quicker and easier.
There is no general website to make an e-visa application at the moment, the application is submitted on your behalf from your sponsor.
2) Can you sponsor my Indonesian visa?
Yes, between me and my partner, we can sponsor a limited number of B211 visas. Over the past few months, we have been helping others to obtain their visa, and travel to Indonesia and Bali.
If you want us to sponsor your visa, the cost is $600 USD and visa approval is guaranteed.
The cost covers all the paperwork mentioned in my post and the visa itself, which will be send via email.
3) Do I need a minimum amount of funds to apply for this visa?
Yes, you’ll need to have at least $1,500 USD (or equivalent) shown on your bank statement. Not $10,000 as some sources are reporting.
4) $600 is quite expensive, is there another way to get sponsorship?
I agree, the price is steep, especially when you consider that before COVID, the cost to enter Indonesia was nothing.
So is there a cheaper way to enter Indonesia? Without a visa you cannot enter Indonesia. Borders are closed for visa-free travel. If you don’t already have a visa, then you’ll need a sponsor, and sponsoring a visa costs money.
But is there a cheaper way to get sponsorship? If you have friends or family, who are Indonesian citizens, who own a business registered in Indonesia, which is capable of offering sponsorship then you could ask for them to assist you with sponsorship.
They should expect to spend around $400 – $450 to obtain all the paperwork needed plus $50 for the visa application.
